Antlers Celebrates Vail’s 50th Anniversary with 50 Percent Off

“50 For 50” package offers excellent value on lodging, lift tickets

1962 - The Vail Journal announces Vail's official opening

When Vail Mountain opened for skiing in 1962, the area had one gondola, two chair lifts and nine ski runs. Today, it’s North America’s largest ski resort with 31 lifts and more than 5,000 skiable acres. It’s fitting that Vail Resorts will kick off its 50th anniversary festivities by installing a new state-of-the-art gondola in the same location as the original Gondola One. The new ride will boast heated leather seats and WiFi, and will speed up the mountain at 1,200 feet per minute.

The Antlers at Vail hotel opened in 1972, and general manager Rob LeVine has been actively involved in the town’s planning and development for more than three decades. “I’ve been here long enough to remember when we put an Amana Radar Range microwave oven in one of our rooms, and people would come from all over just to see it work!” he says.

In honor of the resort’s half-century anniversary, The Antlers at Vail hotel celebrates with 50% savings from November 16 to December 13, 2012. The Antlers “50 For 50” stay-and-ski deal starts at $579 per person for 4 people in a 2-bedroom condo for 4 nights—and the price includes four-day lift tickets for each person! Along with the parties, historic presentations, concerts and other celebrations Vail has planned for its fiftieth birthday, skiers and boarders can enjoy uncrowded slopes and shorter lift lines in the early snow season.

For four decades the Antlers has offered a unique Vail lodging experience in a relaxed mountain setting. Named the Vail Valley ‘Green Business of the Year’ in 2009, the Antlers is also proud to be named a Platinum Service Award Winner by the Vail Valley Partnership. With condominiums ranging from studio suites up to four bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out, each room at the Antlers offers all the comforts of home including fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, outdoor balconies, free Internet access and free parking in a heated indoor garage. The Antlers Vail is conveniently located in the Lionshead area of Vail with numerous restaurants, galleries and shops within walking distance, and the free Vail town shuttle stops just footsteps away. For more information, call 1-800-843-8245.

When the Fine Days of Fall Beckon, Visit the Antlers for a Vail “Walkabout”

Whether you prefer the vigorous, athletic stride of Nordic walking or an easy, meandering stroll, autumn is the perfect time to enjoy Vail’s abundant attractions on foot. The days are sunny, the crowds are gone, the aspen trees make their annual transformation to brilliant gold—and the values can’t be beat.

The Antlers at Vail hotel is a conveniently located home base, with spacious condominiums and plenty of room to spread out. The Antlers Fall Walkabout promotion offers autumn lodging discounts of up to 35% off regular room rates from September 11 through November 18, 2012; prices for a studio suite start at just $156.00 per night.

“Autumn is one of my favorite seasons in the Vail Valley,” says Antlers General Manager Rob LeVine, a resident for more than three decades. “People tend to think of our mountains for physical activities like hiking and mountain biking, but the fact is that many people visit during the fall to slow down a bit, explore the area and take in the scenery.” In fact, one of Vail’s best walks is just footsteps from the Antlers. A paved path runs along Gore Creek from Lionshead to East Vail, with benches along the way to take in the dappled sunshine and sounds of rushing water.

Those who prefer downhill ambulation to uphill climbing will enjoy a scenic ride on the Vail Gondola to the summit followed by a three- to four-hour walk down the mountain. The Betty Ford Alpine Gardens—the world’s highest botanical garden at 8200 feet— also gives guided walking tours through the end of September.

Can’t imagine stretching your legs without your favorite canine? Dogs are welcome to stay at the Antlers at Vail, and are greeted with a giant bowl of dog biscuits when they arrive. The Antlers’ condominiums range from studio suites up to four bedrooms with fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, outdoor balconies, free Internet access and free heated indoor parking. Conveniently located 200 yards from the Vail Gondola, numerous restaurants, galleries and shops are within walking distance and the free Vail town shuttle stops just footsteps away.

November 16, 2011 – Vail, CO – “Lighten up” takes on a whole new meaning during spring snow season, when Vail Resort’s 193 trails are uncrowded, lift lines are short, skiers and boarders shed heavy outerwear for lightweight vests and turtlenecks (or for some hardy souls, shorts), and a lighthearted joie de vivre abounds.

“Spring is absolutely one of the best times to experience Vail,” says Antlers at Vail hotel General Manager Rob LeVine, a Vail local for three decades. “April is actually Colorado’s second-snowiest month, and we often have magnificent snow days with plenty of sunshine late in the season.” The conveniently-located Antlers Vail offers its popular ‘Design Your Own Ski Package’ from April 8 to May 20 in 2012. Pay for three nights and the fourth, fifth – and even sixth night is free. A one-bedroom bunkroom that sleeps four people starts at just $355 per night for the first three nights, with up to three additional nights free. Coupled with Vail Resorts’ deeply discounted spring lift tickets and passes, late-season values can’t be beat.

Along with reduced rates, Vail Resorts’ “Spring Back to Vail” promotion features plenty of end-of-the-season activities including on-mountain snow events and street parties. The best party of the year is held at the top of Vail Mountain on closing day – tentatively scheduled for April 15 this year – when many revelers arrive in costume to celebrate another great season. Other attractions include end-of-season concerts, Vintage SkiFest at Beaver Creek, and the World Pond Skimming Championships.

Antlers Halls and Walls

Some things just don’t last forever and some things simply need to be accented.

The carpet on our walkways outside all the Antlers at Vail condominiums was crying “I’m tired.  I’m worn out and I want to be recycled.”  The Antlers Board and owners granted the wish.  They approved the purchase of 18,000 square feet of new carpet, 240 gallons of glue, 400 lbs of floor leveler, and Castle Peak Carpet Installers to do the job.

Lay down that glue and roll it over.

My favorite.

Our garage walls have been just that for too long…..garage walls.  They were in dire need of some accent pieces. Our underground, heated, well lit parking structure.  now has artwork.  With the permission of long time resident and photographer Jack Affleck, we retained New Vista Image to reproduce some incredible photographs of the Vail Valley.  Mounted on 4′ x 8′ sheets, the color and imagery are amazing.

Tom and Ryan secure some "garage art" for free public viewing.
